What To Expect

metro station Hoehyeon, Namdaemun market exit 5

Namdaemun Market
Kickstart your food tour in Seoul at the best place possible, at the largest traditional market in Korea. Meet your host and get ready to eat your way through Seoul!

As you explore the market, make a stop for your first tasting: a bowl of Bibimbap. This tasty dish is a combination of rice, vegetables, and meat topped with a gochujang sauce that will bring the whole plate together

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Tongin Market
Get a taste of authentic kimchi, a famous Korean spicy side dish created from fermented cabbage together with a classic noodle soup

Ready for a nice treat? Munch on a popular street food of Korea, Hottteok, a pancaked stuffed with veggies to suit the locals’ tastes

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

If you want to go for a walk to your next stop, you’ll encounter one of the royal palaces in downtown Seoul. This picturesque palace is a must-see!

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Bukchon Hanok Village

Taste Jeon, Korean vegetable pancakes which the main ingredient is scallion and can be cooked with beef, pork, seafood and kimchi

Rice Wine: Complement your savory pancakes with a glass of Makgeolli or “farmer’s liquor”. This beverage is one of the most consumed alcohol in the country and you’ll soon discover why

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Gyeongbokgung Palace
Make a stop to admire from the outside what’s unarguably the most popular royal palace in Korea. If you’re lucky you might catch the royal guard changing ceremony! (the royal guard ceremony is only in the morning before the food tour starts so I left this out)

Amazing Food tour!

Amazing food and a tour of the city! This is the best way to eat very good and authentic Korean food and see the sites in Seoul. Julian was kind and knowledgeable of the history and layout of Seoul. It's well spaced out so you can eat and see some great places. Come hungry and ready to eat!
Soul of Seoul Food tour!

Julian was the perfect guide. Not only did he take me to try amazing bites (I am SO FULL) but he also gave me a richer understanding of the history, culture, and dynamics of Seoul! This tour is a must do!
Highly Recommend!

This was one of my favorite Seoul experiences! Our guide, Julian, was so friendly and knowledgeable about the food, culture, and history of Seoul. We had to move our booking last minute due to flight delays but he was very accommodating with the change. Not to mention the food was incredible (and vegetarian friendly)! I would recommend this experience to anyone visiting Seoul!
Amazing Experience!

I was the only person on the tour, but my guide was incredibly helpful and well informed. He spent a lot of time explaining what I was eating and never rushed me. Definitely would recommend to anyone wanted to learn more about Korean food and culture.
So much to try!

There were so many good things to try on this tour, especially at and near Namdaemun market! We also covered a lot of ground on foot; it was nice to have breaks in between the food tastings. The itinerary listed here is just a suggestion, I'm guessing, because we didn't follow it. It's definitely the priciest the food tour I've done, but it was nice to do a private tour for a change.
